Microsoft is producing a live-action web series called "Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn" that introduces a new character and ties into the plot of Halo 4.
The company doesn't want the project to be viewed solely as a marketing stunt. "We wanted to do something unique from a narrative standpoint that's big in scale," 343 Industries director of franchise business management Frank McCloskey told Variety.
Over the course of five 15-minute episodes, "Forward Unto Dawn" tells the story of a young UNSC cadet who runs into Master Chief early on in the struggle between humanity and the Covenant and uses the legendary Spartan as an inspiration to rise through the ranks and serve as an officer aboard the UNSC Infinity.
"Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn" will air on Machinima.com and the official Halo Waypoint in the weeks before the game launches on November 6.

I'll check it out when it airs, but it's about some random cadet, so I'm not sure.
This sounds really awesome. I'll be looking forward to this and I'm sure it will get me even more excited for the game.
Animated Master Chief is enough for me.
sounds cool! I'll take that if they can't make a movie. Hopefully it'll be like AC Lineage
The live action commercial for ODST was amazing so hopefully this will be good.
I JUST SHAT
Time to play the waiting game now...
I'll probably watch it, just 'cause. That Master Chief armor is pretty slick.
sweet this will be my Halo movie! I am going to download each episode and put them all together to make a movie!
I love this stuff
it will be amazing to see more live action halo that ties into the story and hopefully is a gd direction towards a movie

I cant wait for this game to come out and am so far impressed with how 343 industries is handling the series. good job so far guys
Ooh, wanna see this; hope it beats "Killzone Extraction's" standard, now that was a good webisode or short film or fan film, or whatever. I want to see a good Halo version of that.
